Friday Fractured Thought | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

So, I'm a bit bleary eyed and not so bushy-tailed this week. In fact, I'm writing this blog at 2:16 AM while I listen to my kid grunt and spit and fight sleep next to me. Yes, I'm becoming one of those parents who can really think of nothing more than how little sleep I'm getting and the various issues with my kids. This will change, I'm sure (hopefully soon!) but it's all-consuming currently.

- Kidlet #2 has a nasty case of the colic. This has lead to blood-curdling screaming nightly from about 6pm until she konks out around 10pm....and then is up pretty much every 2 hours or so with more of the same. We're running the gamut of "cures" currently, from Zantac to wraps to new food to ColicCalm. Hoping against hope that one or some combination is the magic cure. It really makes you reevaluate your choices as a parent. For one, I used to be pretty anti-pacifier. I'm just not a fan, especially in older kids. But, if it helps the kid fall asleep this point I'm willing to buy stock in Binkies if it works.

- One thing I learned NOT to watch while up in the wee hours of the night? The show "Infested!". It's on some science-y channel (or animal-y channel, not sure). It's all about various infestations people have dealt with: mice, rats, bugs, snakes. You name it. It is straight up GROSS. But I was hooked. It was fascinating...especially the amount people will just deal with before packing up and moving.

- On a similar note, a mouse (which I consider to be the grossest creatures alive) took up residence in our garage for the winter....and scared the life out of the me the other night when I opened the door to our garage to throw out some recycling. He leapt (leaped?....ah, whatever) from our recycling bin after I startled him and I screamed like a little girl. I. Hate. Mice. So , I promptly went and got some mice-killing stuff. Goodbye mouse.

- The "Lose the Baby Fat by Wedding Season Kick-Off" Diet (yeah, that needs a shorter name) is in full swing. I've worked out 8 days in a row (alternating the 30 Day Shred with another workout from some lady whose name I'm spacing on right now). I've lost 3 lbs. since I started. I'm also on a low-calorie diet, which means no more stacks of syrupy waffles in the morning...and no more soda, which is a gigantic feat for the this girl. I never needed to diet before having kids. I also never worked out. I was one of those people who walked the Mile Run in grade school...out of shear laziness. So, the fact that I've been sticking to this workout routine is a miracle. Here's hoping it continues.

- I got all my studio light stuff in the mail this week. I haven't had much of a chance to play with it, but I did some test shots of Betty. I'm hoping to get more time with the stuff once we figure out the Molly-Never-Stops-Screaming situation.

- I took Miss Betty on a "Girls Day" to see Tangled....what a CUTE movie. Probably up there with a favorite Disney flick.

- Teen Mom 2!! Yes please!

- I took the girls out for our first "outing" yesterday. It was relatively successful in that Molly only cried on the way TO our destination and Betty didn't throw any massive tantrums. I even threw in a trip to Target to further test my abilities as a "Mom of two". Not bad....except I learned that fitting a 3 year old and a baby carrier into a cart and expecting to have room for purchases is...well..expecting too much. I had to squeeze everything I bought into the seat next to Betty....which led to her poking a hole in my goat cheese package. Fun.

- I'm still on maternity leave, for the most part, but I am itching to get back to work. I have a wedidng coming up on the 22nd which cannot come soon enough. Back to the land of the living!

- So, that being said, I'm taking bookings for portrait sessions...give me a jingle and lets set something up because if I don't photograph something soon I'm liable to freak out and start, oh I dunno, selectively coloring artistically tilted pictures of my kids.

- Wedding season 2011 is fast becoming completely booked.....which is early for me. I'm twice as booked as I was this time last year, which is if you're looking to get Type A for your 2011 event I would contact me sooner rather than later. I'm looking to only take about 5 more weddings for the year.

- That being said, if you're a 2012 bride, hit me up! Plenty of space!

- Don't forget to vote!

Up this week? Not a whole heck of a lot. Finding sleep where I can get it. I got 10 hours of housekeeping for Christmas and that starts next week and not a moment too soon. This whole housewife/mom thing is a lot harder than I thought....and I can't imagine how much I'll have to complain and whine about once work starts back up! Oh lucky readers!

Here's your moment-o-Betty and Molly.....enjoy!

My life at the moment. Good times!

We went through the same thing with my son when he was an infant as well. Started out first as a soy allergy, then discovered he was allergic to lactose as well and put him on Alimentum. Alimentum helped a ton! He was on it in till a year. He also had colic and reflux. The reflux meds did nothing for us. He sleep on his side or belly down on my chest for the first 4 month then went to his crib. Not ideal, but some sleep is better than none.

I hope you find a combination that works for you soon! I completely understand where you are coming from.
